Music video by Dire Straits performing Skateaway. (C) 1980 Mercury Records Limited

"Skateaway" is a 1980 rock song by Dire Straits, dealing with a female roller-skater (Jay Curley/Jayzik Azikiwe/Self Promoter) breezing through busy city streets, who is listening to a then-newly-released Walkman. It appears on Making Movies. Released as a single in 1981, the song was accompanied by a video that was popular on MTV. The line "making movies on location" was from the unreleased track Making Movies (Song).
